"The Optometrist and the Educator" views the role of the optometrist in relation to student learning. "Eye Anatomy Terms" defines the ciliary muscle, optic disc and nerve, macula and fovea, and external eye muscles. "Physiology of Vision While Studying" presents an account of the physiological phenomenon that occurs when a student studies. "The Under-Achiever" emphasizes that a student-oriented type of clinical optometric vision examination be given routinely to every underachiever once a year.
